This third edition of Sentencing and Punishment provides an updated, succint and penetrating account of theoretical, legal and policy-related developments since the second edition as well as covering some of the ground of earlier editions. The change in government from Labour to a Coalition Government in 2010, the August 2011 riots, and the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill have all prompted vigorous debate about criminal justice, as has the continued high use of imprisonment. This is an informative, authoritative and lively account of sentencing and punishment - essential reading for anyone interested in the creation and delivery of justice.
